  • Signing Off on Employee Handbook Update?

    Our company has an update to our handbook which will be posted on our intranet with an email going out to all employees advising them of the revision.  Do I still need every employee to sign receipt/acknowledgement of the update or if I retain the email I sent to all employees, will that suffice?

    Any legal counsel will tell you that you should still send out an acknowledgement of receipt and have the employees sign. This is the only way you can be absolutely sure (in court) that the employees have read and understood the revisions.

    The rule of thumb is: "If it's not in writing, it didn't happen."
